- The boat has a really good cockpit with seating all round and lockers beneath (also below cockpit sole). The vessel's vented gas locker, recently brought up to new safety standards, is located under the starboard seating. Access to the interior of the boat is via the companionway, which has a single door and sliding hatch. To starboard of this there is a hanging locker and the galley whilst to port there is a dinette (converts to a double berth), plus cupboards and lockers. The galley has worktops, a sink unit with manually pumped cold water, a Flavell Vanessa cooker and various cupboards. Opposite, the dinette area has storage under one of the seats and under the side decks plus engine access under the other seat. Going forward, there is an electrically powered cold box/fridge and hanging locker to starboard opposite which is the heads. This has a sea-toilet (newly installed 2000) and handbasin. In the bow there are 2 full-length single berths, (both with storage under). Headroom, at 5ft 10in, is good, a particular bonus being that - unlike many Broads craft - the roof, even with this excellent headroom, is fixed thus obviating the need to haul the roof up and down when mooring.
- Navigation lights
- 2 x fire extinguishers
- Fire blanket
- Smoke detector
- Usual Broads inventory including mudweight, Rhond anchors, ropes and fenders
- Stainless steel pulpit rail
- Over-boom cockpit tent
It is understood the boat had her propeller shaft, cutlass bearings and universal joints replaced last year. She also had the woodwork of her cockpit seats and lockers renovated. Built on the North Norfolk coast, this vessel would be equally at home for inland or estuary sailing. A very comfortable boat, and one moreover that appears to be in excellent condition.
